Facial expressions and gestures are indicative of human intention and emotion. According to some statistics [72], 93% of messages in the face-to-face communication situation are transmitted via facial expression, gestures, and voice tone, while only 7% are via linguistic words. Home-installed RR should be highly efficient and capable of responding to the user’s exact commands and also to the user’s intentions with a high level of “fuzziness” as well, treating and executing them in a proper way.

The original RTX robot was followed by higher powered versions, the RT100 and the RT200. A mobile version was also investigated, R-Theta but never commercialised One early use of the RTX was a workstation system developed by Caroline Fu [9] of Boeing in Seattle for one of their employees. Interestingly in a number of cases the impetus for using robotics has been from employers, to enable them to continue with valuable staff after accidents, and to keep their expertise within the company. Another significant use of the RT series robot was by the Master project [5] in France.

It is expected that the new generation interface devices will be able to adapt to the user’s specifics and will be highly resistant to various artifacts. We anticipate that a major reform of the future residential space will take place by the advent of the use of various service robots. Low cost robots with increased functionality and high reliability will extend the range of activities in which the persons with disabilities will be supported. The IRH will implement strong fusion among different sources of sensor information.
